Sagging in Northern Virginia, Deeds Introduces New Rural Ads

Rosalind Helderman

New poll results suggest that Democrat Creigh Deeds do more to sell himself to Northern Virginians, including the traditionally left-leaning inner Washington suburbs, and that voters believe his campaign has become largely negative.

Today we get positive ads from Deeds ... aimed at convincing rural Virginians that he's fighting for them to get their "fair share" from Richmond. And that Deeds will fight for "small towns." And that he understands "your part of the state." And that he's "From Here. For Here." There's a new "Hope and Opportunity" tour in the Shenandoah Valley and Southside. This is all going to give the political pundits something to chew on.

His campaign did make a nod at healing tensions with the White House and energizing Obama Democrats with a statement praising the Nobel Committee for awarding their Peace Prize to the president. "I join the Nobel Committee in standing by President Obama as he continues to spread his message of hope throughout the world," the statement reads in part.

Here's the new TV version:

UPDATE: We're being reminded that Deeds did begin airing a new ad on transportation in Northern Virginia on Thursday. You can watch that ad elsewhere on the blog.

I do not understand this campaign. NoVa sends over 80% of its State tax dollars to other parts of Virginia. NoVa is heavily Democratic. Is Creigh trying to push NoVa into McD's arms?

Last time I checked NOVA is not a SMALL TOWN so good luck with the TOWNIE Ad to win Independents like me here in NOVA. Keep your eyes on the road, and I hope you have your seatbelt on while filming this ad.

"Hi I'm Creigh Deeds - Let me help you feed from the trough..."
